On Sunday we went to Wittenberg, where Martin Luther lived and preach. It was the city where the reformation began, kind of crazy we got to go there. Anyways we got to worship in the church where Luther infamously nailed his 95 questions and complaints to the church door. Though the original door burned in WWII (like most things in Germany), a bronze door has replaced it with his thesis written in raised letters on the front. The cool part was we got to walk out of those doors when we exited the service. I was surprised at the size of the city, it was pretty small. You could walk across the town in less then a half hour. Also Luther’s house is huge. After becoming the most famous man in Germany he became very rich. A lot of people offered his family and him donations. A lot of animals and barley for beer.
